Very surprised that I didn’t have a sore head this morning. Went a bit OTT with the red wine seeing as how it was free. Dispensed by a hand pump instead of out of the bottle. Most strange but wow wouldn’t I like to adopt that method! On tap and as much as you like....lovely.
Before the coach arrived I walked to the beach a few yards from the hotel. With Thursday being a free day, cant wait to dip my toes in the sea.
Off to Ypres to see the Menin Gate . Unfortunately due to extensive road works all around Ypres another hour was added to the journey as our coach driver tried almost in vain to get to the drop off point. So when we did eventually arrive in the square only 2 and a half hours were allocated for sightseeing. Still that was plenty of time to see most of what we wanted to see but not enough time to go round the Museum of Flanders. I suppose we will just have to make the effort to come back at some point in the future. Anyway loads of photos to show as usual and a few wildlife from yesterdays trip.
